In the week before Christmas I was laid low with the horrible cold-flu thing that seems to have been doing the rounds recently; I rallied enough to enjoy Christmas dinner with the neighbours (just as well I didn’t have to cook that day), but I am still not one hundred per cent over it… All of which is why these last Christmas card posts have been going up somewhat later than I had intended.
Luckily I had finished making cards before falling ill, well almost finished… On Christmas Eve I suddenly realised I hadn’t made one for my other half, so I bravely set about making this spinning yeti, only to then get a migraine that meant I couldn’t actually focus on the yeti to colour it… So this card was finished off on Christmas morning…
This is the first spinner card I have made and I was a bit too careful keeping the thread taut when I glued everything together, a tiny bit of slack would have made it easier to wind up the spinner without it deforming the card! But, it does work, even if it has a tendency to end up with yeti butt facing outwards, which my other half chooses to be offended by 🙂
